Help with affiliate link within text capsule...

    How do I place my own Amazon affiliate link into a text capsule?  I should know by now how to do this, but I don't and I had no idea that I would get 100% of the commission by doing so!

      Lily, I take the link from Amazon (with my affiliate number included) and add it as a hyperlink.

      If I were interested in linking "blue widgets" in my text box, highlight the words "blue widgets" and click the hyperlink button.  Paste in the amazon link and hit save.

      Hope that helps.

        Just make sure you have the amazon associates number in the url.  I keep the amazon associates banner at the top of the amazon page and the button on the far left hand side says "link to this page."  That brings up the url for the product with your referral built in.

    Thanks for bringing up the question Lily because until Paul mentioned it in the other thread I wasn't aware of the share opportunity either. smile

    Thanks Mutiny for clarification smile

    Mutiny....just to clarify, when you hyperlink, you use the html code for the product (which is what's provided when you click "link to this page")?

      I typically strip out the image piece of it and just copy the html code for the product itself (since I am prone to 'oopses' I will go back and make sure it works.

        I really am clueless when it comes to html and working with it, so not sure if I can actually do this now...

    I think though that if you take this route, you are restricted by the no more than two links to a web site rule? If yes, it means you could not do this if you wanted to feature more than two products. Can someone clarify?

      Yes. It would be treated like any other commercial link.

    Lily, I am on the road today, but I will send you a note when I get home tonight. It is easy to do once you know what to look for. You won't have any troubles.
